|The Red Indian Fairy Book|
|by Frances Jenkins Olcott|
|A choice collection of Native American myths and legends carefully selected from many sources. Most are nature stories telling about birds, beasts, flowers, and rocks of our American meadows, prairies, and forests. The tales are arranged according to the seasons with several stories offered for each month of the year. There are some for early spring, when the maple sap mounts, and the arbutus blooms under the snow; for later spring, when the birds nest, and the wild flowers blow; for summer, with its heat, storms, fishing, and canoeing; for autumn with its corn, nuts, and harvest feast; for winter, with its ice, snow, and adventures. A comprehensive subject index for use by teachers and storytellers is included. Ages 8-12 |
About This Text
This text was prepared by Miriam Domermuth, using
as copytext, The Red Indian Fairy Book: For the Children's Own
Reading and for Story-Tellers, by
Frances Jenkins Olcott, with illustrations by Frederick Richardson,
Houghton Mifflin Company, 1917.
Since this book was first published before 1923, it is in the public domain
in the United States. By
U.S. law, it entered the public domain 75 years after
its first publication.
Numerous black and white and several color illustrations are included in the text.
There is a wonderful
Subject Index at the back of this book. I started a
Subject Index with hyperlinks, but realized it was going to take
more time than I wanted to allow to it. Let me know if you would like
to finish it. Send email to Lisa@MainLesson.com.
